 I'm sorry, this is another of my "brown paper bag" moments.  I did
not notice the *explanation* when I grepped for libexecdir
yesterday.  I did notice there was an explanation when I ran svn
update an hour or so ago.  I haven't actually looked at the page yet
(still sorting out what I intend to alter, and I had to go back to
my previous 'gnome' build in chroot because I also missed w3m, which
requires gc, yesterday), but that explanation you have posted above
looks good.  Again, my apologies.

 Thanks also to Pierre for his comments.

/me likes /usr/libexec, but not need for consequential changes to
the book at short notice.  I'll attempt to fix up the remaining
libexec stuff shortly - hopefully, *before* I ask myself "Do I feel
lucky ?", otherwise I might not do anything :-(

ĸen, a.k.a "why should I be right when I can easily be wrong ?"
das eine Mal als Tragödie, dieses Mal als Farce
